Capturing the perfect selfie isn't as easy as it looks. There's a lot of effort that goes into getting the image just right, so who better to learn from than the one and only Kim Kardashian West? After all, she is the author of Selfish, a book that includes hundreds of pages of selfies.

The reality star may be an expert at posing for the camera and likely has all the top makeup artists on speed dial, but it's actually her cell phone case—believe it or not—that does the heavy lifting. Kardashian West has been spotted (above and below) using the LuMee case ($50; to light up her flawless photos. This isn't your average cell phone cover. The perimeter features LED lights that effortlessly provide that professional-grade glow for every shot.

The best part is that the light isn't harsh like the standard phone flash. LuMee cases provide a soft, flattering light with dimmers to illuminate each selfie to your liking. The case has its own rechargeable battery, which could remain charged for weeks depending on individual use. Check out some of Kardashian West's selfies taken with the case below, and say cheese to an endless future of perfectly lit selfies.
